If you missed this Summer's female buddy cop comedy The Heat with Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy, you'll have a chance to check it out when it comes out on DVD and Blu-ray this week. We have a look at one of the extras — a blooper reel of Bullock and McCarthy cracking each other up — and even if you haven't seen the movie yet, you'll want to watch this — because who doesn't love a blooper reel? The actresses can't keep their giggles in, and you won't be able to either.
Despicable Me 2 continued to dominate the box office, adding $44.8 million to its impressive two-week total of $229.2 million. New release Grown Ups 2 was the runner-up, taking in $42.5 million, followed by fellow new release Pacific Rim with $38.3 million. The Heat earned another $14 million, and The Lone Ranger continued its disappointing streak with just $11.1 million. Indie release Fruitvale Station earned $377,00 in just seven theaters nationwide, earning more per theater than any other film.
Animated family film Despicable Me 2 won the holiday weekend at the box office, taking in $82.5 million. The Lone Ranger stumbled at a distant second, earning only $29.4 million — not bad, but definitely not good for a big-budget Disney film. The Heat came in third with $25 million, while last week's No. 1, Monsters University, took in $19.6 million. Brad Pitt's World War Z rounded out the top five with an $18.2 million haul. And in limited release, The Way, Way Back earned $575,000 in its first week of release.
Sandra Bullock brought her Summer blockbuster The Heat to Sydney today. She was on solo duty since she was without her costar and real-life best friend, Melissa McCarthy, who is back in the US filming her next project, Tammy. The trip to Oz was a busy one for Sandra, who donned a blue Alberta Ferretti ensemble to pose for a photocall with the scenic Sydney Opera House in the background and then later reemerged in an Emilio Pucci dress to premiere the film down under.
Sandra made the trek to Australia after a brief press break to spend time with her son, Louis, during a trip to the Natural History Museum in LA over the weekend. Louis also accompanied his mom to bring The Heat to NYC two weeks ago, where we caught up with Sandra and Melissa on the red carpet. The film has kept Sandra busy since she also made solo stops in Boston and London to promote The Heat last month.
Don't call it a comeback — Sandra Bullock never really left — though her most recent role on the big screen is also marked by a series of sizzling red carpet appearances that have us tuning in to every stop on The Heat's promo tour. We've never seen Sandra embrace the bells and whistles of event dressing — she's most often spotted in denim while running errands with son Louis in her arms — but there's something about her recent lineup of ensembles that's turning heads.
First she wowed in a range of sexy all-black looks, like body-skimming leather and a breezy Victoria Beckham maxi, and some serious statement heels to finish every look. Most recently, the actress made a stop in Sydney — and this time opted for a bold cobalt color by day and a sexier Summer-perfect mini by night — and it's all inside. Just click through for a little lesson in bringing heat, Sandra style.
Sandra Bullock's red carpet comeback shows no signs of slowing. The actress hit Sydney for The Heat and brought with her a cool blue outfit for daytime and a hot minidress for night. When Sandra posed for the film's photocall, it was all about the brights in a cobalt blue-on-blue top and pant set. For her evening appearance at the premiere, Sandra slipped into something a little sexier, choosing an embroidered and embellished tunic dress. The common denominator? Sexy, strappy cage heels fit both of her looks.
For both appearances — as is the case with Sandra's entire promo tour — she's bringing the heat. The only question is: which look is hotter? Time to cast your vote below!
Despite lots of big stars headlining two new movies this weekend, the new releases were no match for Pixar sequel Monsters University, which took the top box office for the second week in a row, earning $46.2 million. The Heat may not have been No. 1, but the Sandra Bullock/Melissa McCarthy comedy still raked in an impressive $40 million, beating World War Z, which earned $29.8 million, and fellow new release White House Down, which only pulled in $25.7 million. Hanging on to fifth place was Man of Steel, which made $20.8 million in its third week in release.

Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy's Summer blockbuster The Heat hits theaters today, and we got to sit down with their director Paul Feig, who is most famous for championing 2011's Bridesmaids, to chat about this new female-focused comedy. Paul revealed his knack for casting funny ladies as leads came from his "frustration" at watching women not being allowed to be funny but playing the "mean girlfriend all the time." He also spoke to watching Sandra and Melissa's relationship develop on and off screen, explaining that they were very "fun to watch," as well as revealing which funny lady he's eyeing next.
